About Callicoon, NY real estate
Callicoon, New York is situated on the Delaware River in the western region of Sullivan County, about 2:15 from New York City. This quaint river hamlet serves as a focus for river sports as well as a mini retail hub for upper Delaware River valley. (Note: Callicoon is not the same as ‘Callicoon Center’, a different place about 10 miles NE.)
Callicoon is home to the Callicoon Theater, a 40’s era, single screen movie theater and local landmark. In addition to showing first run films, the theater also hosts the Cine-Art series, sponsored by the Delaware Arts Society, bringing more sophisticated foreign and art films to the county.
Just north of the hamlet, along River Road, is one of the few areas on the New York side of the Delaware River where river houses don’t have busy Route 97 running between the houses and the river. (Yes, River Road does run between the houses and the river, but its a very quiet, dead end road, popular with walkers and bicyclists.)
Callicoon is the center of a rural farming area, and northeast of the hamlet is the Beechwoods, between Callicoon and Jeffersonville, one of the loveliest areas of rolling farmland in the county. There is some spectacular view property in this area, but seldom many houses for sale. The Villa Roma Resort, with an 18 hole golf course, anchors the east side of the Beechwoods.
Matthews on Main is a lovely restaurant in Callicoon, with outdoor seating during the warmer months, while Lander’s Cafe offers more down-home fare. The Callicoon Brewing Company, in an old converted firehouse, is a popular brew pub.
Callicoon has a some notable festivals and events. Summer kicks off with the Callicoon Tractor Parade, followed by the Callicoon Canoe Regatta. Every Sunday, there’s a lively farmer’s market in the Callicoon Creek Park. Callicoon is also a great base for families with children because of the Delaware Community Center at the south end of town, with a swimming pool in the summer, playground and ball fields and a variety of programs for kids and teens.
